Hope everyone had a nice Easter Sunday. It seemed to come early this year and I have to confess that it took me by surprise, so much so that I wasn't really prepared. It was a crazy weekend but mom took care of the fun stuff and I managed to plan a meal at the last minute. Plus, we got to see a movie on top of all that.
On Saturday we spent the day in Boston with A and her buddies and it was an all day affair at the Anime Festival. We got home around midnight and as A went straight to bed, R was getting the candy and eggs ready for Easter. Even though we're not that hardcore about celebrating the occasion, we always manage to do something fun. Part of that is the old Easter Egg hunt, not to mention tons of candy and a nice family meal. The kids don't seem to tire of searching for the candy and eggs, so we should enjoy it while we can. Plus, they never tire of an occasion to make fun of their dad for doing such a cheesy job of hiding the eggs.
We had a nice breakfast of pancakes and bacon, and then the kids hung out with mom while I went out and got dinner rations. The plan was to make beef stew, which we actually do every year for Easter but I seem to forget this fact. I set about making the stew while mom and kids made our other holiday tradition: Easter bread. It's an impressive piece of work and tastes amazing. Once the stew and bread were made, we headed out to see a movie at the Hop - we have season passes to the movie series there - then it was home for supper and a little R&R. It sure is nice not having to run around for hockey.
It was a nice day, and makes you realize that when you can appreciate the little things in life like spending the day with your family and having a nice meal, you're doing okay.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Jenny Fox for the pic.
